Conspiracy Charges Dropped

WASHINGTON — A judge dismissed the conspiracy charges Monday against Rep. Tom DeLay but refused to throw out the money-laundering charges, dashing his hopes for now of reclaiming his post as House majority leader.

Well, obviously, this isn't perfect, but it's very good.

One other point is that just because the money laundering charges were not dropped does not automatically equal a guilty conviction, as the nightly news anchors will most likely imply.
If it even makes it to the newscast.

Update: So, can you guess what the AP headline is?...
"DeLay's Money Laundering Charges Upheld". Why am I not surprised by this?
